    Christian Perspectives in Peacemaking (CPP)

    Working Group

    CPP is a newly formed working group in SHSS. The group's mission is to provide

    academic resources and networking opportunities for students at Nova

    Southeastern University who are interested in using the teachings of the historic

    Jesus of Nazareth, the biblical Prince of Peace, in conflict resolution practices.

    CPP holds monthly telephonic meetings and schedules bi-annual activities and

    social gatherings during the fall and winter Residential Institutes. Most recently,

    the group featured guest speaker, Dr. Ken Newberger, during Winter RI 2013. Dr.

    Newberger, a graduate of Nova's DCAR program, presented the Judeo-

    Christian Model of Peacemaking, "a process of peacemaking that has

    reconciliation as its goal."

    Both residential and distance learning students are welcome to participate in

    the group. Additionally, the group welcomes all students irrespective of religious

    or spiritual creed. CPP is currently recruiting members and encourages anyone

    interested in more information to visit their website,

    http://christianpeacemakers.groupbox.com, or contact one of the Executive

    Officers directly via email.

    Executive Team: President – Crystal Lee [email protected]; Vice President – Nicole Davis [email protected];

    Treasurer – Ron Wiley [email protected]; Secretary – Deborish Bailey [email protected]

    From the Dean’s desk

    Dear colleagues, students, and alumni,

    Three years ago I wrote a piece about the critical significance of self-care, in SHSS

    of the pressing challenges in academic studies, life, career, and community. As you

    know, NSU has a designated web link at http://www.nova.edu/wellness/ where some

    of our professors, students, and alums have contributed. Please bookmark it to help

    remind each other of practicing it on and off campus.
